The Godfather of charms, Mr. Aaron Basha, started pretty early in life. His jewelry career started out meeting royals with his mother, a jeweler herself. These visits, when he was between 9 to 12 years old, broke him in to the world’s premiere class. The original House of Basha was started by Aaron Basha’s mother. It was in the early twentieth century when they put up shop in Berkeley Square in London. It was in the 1990’s when they moved Manhattan for good. During Aaron Basha’s career, he too enjoyed the patronage of royals. He was once commissioned by a South East Asian princess to produce a life size baby shoe pendant encrusted with fancy yellow diamonds. The work took Aaron two months and sold more than one million pounds. While creating jewelry with briolette diamonds, diamonds that have their entire surface cut with triangle facets, Aaron Basha came about with creating charms. The influence of these stones led Aaron to create the iconic pieces that we see today and discerning tastes appreciate. It is this mix of fun and elegance that led to the success that is Aaron Basha, the Godfather of charms. For Aaron Basha charms, visit Shreve & Co. – authorized dealer for Aaron Basha.
